Please note we have extended the eligibility to include youth from Ontario and Quebec; however the camp is not accessible to unlingual French-speaking youth. Unilingual children and teens should apply to our Ontario or Nova Scoita camps which are bilingual.

Camp Horizon is situated within the picturesque Rocky Mountain foothills just outside of Bragg Creek, Alberta. For over 50 years, Camp Horizon has been dedicated to providing children and youth a safe and nurturing environment to play, learn and interact with their peers.

Camp Horizon is the only facility in Alberta that offers camp programs tailored entirely to the needs of a specific special needs featured group each week. Many of their programs and equipment are unique to the rest of the province and to Canada.

PLEASE NOTE: As we prepare for the 2023 camp season, we continue to observe the COVID-19 pandemic and the developments of provincial health guidelines. We are working closely with the Crohn's and Colitis COVID-19 and IBD Task Force and our partner sites, to ensure the health and safety of our campers. As a result, your child's camp acceptance or camp program may be subject to changes or cancellation.​
